The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. – Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV
It’s comforting to know that wherever we go, God Himself goes ahead of us to scope out any danger and to protect us. We don’t need to be afraid, even if we feel like we are stepping into unknown territory.
The Lord can prepare us for anything. We are never alone because God is with us, and we can tune into His voice while we mute the noise from the rest of the world.
The Lord reminds us that we don’t need to be discouraged for long if something in our lives is not moving at the pace that we want. At times the gears in our heads seem to turn slowly, but God’s thinking is clear, and we can rely on Him. Amen.
